The 20 year-old Jeju United player has passed a medical and will now link up with the Bundesliga club in January.

He will stay until December 2014 and the move could then be made permanent if he impresses during his stint in Germany.

The striker revealed that compatriot Son Heung-Min was a key factor in helping him choose Leverkusen over other potential suitors.

"It's a great feeling to be playing here," he told Bild.

"Son is an important reason why I'm here. He only told me good things about the club. He will help me settle in."

Ryu will join the travelling squad for Leverkusen's away fixture at Werder Bremen on Saturday before returning to South Korea.

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
